I stayed on beachcomber island for 4 nights with a friend over the new years period. We stayed in an ocean view bure which was great! we had our own deck and the bure was so big that we had the choice of 7 beds for the 2 of us and a shower and toilet each.
beachcomber is a party island however it is also easy to have some quiet time, we used the opposite side of the island to the bar etc to do all our laying in the sun and snorkelling (we found Nemo and his dad only 20-30 meters off shore hehe).
There's alot of coral in the sand however your feet soon gets used to it. I loved the fact that the whole island, including the bar, dining area and paths was all sand (the only hard ground was in the bure). They played the same music every day and night...no big deal though, it turned into a funny highlight of our holiday. The bula dance is alot of fun, and the drinks are NOT over priced. I can't get over how some people have said that the drink Are over priced. we bought jugs of beer for $18 fijian which is like only $8 australian or less.. its still a good idea to take your own drink too.
The staff were so friendly, our housekeeper Sala was our favourite staff member.
New years eve was fun, a great way to get to know the other travellers and at midnight there was fireworks and you could see other fireworks going off on the surrounding islands.
We did the island hopping pub crawl which was alot of fun. It was cool to check out the other resorts, i got to say though- beachcomber was the best one.
We also hired canoes for 2 hrs and canoed it over to treasure island. spent an hr in their pool (make sure u go the back way in, like climb the small wall because they may tell you to not use the pool if they know you are from beachcomber) it took 15-20mins to canoe over there.
The food was fine and it wasnt the same thing every day.. they did try and mix it up a lil, (roast on sunday) breakfast was nice. i recommend you go down for the last 1/2 hour of meals otherwise you'll get stuck in a long line up at the start of serving.
All in all we had the best time, so great that we are planning to go back to beachcomber next new years.
